Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
Geohazards and Georisks has a strong emphasis on real practical geohazard and georisk applications, and will publicize interesting studies and projects that use state-of-the-art geohazard and georisk methods. These studies and projects may be in the government, corporate, insurance, or NGO sectors, and may be anywhere in the world.
Geohazards and Georisks is a specialty section with a strong emphasis on real practical geohazard and georisk applications, and will publicize interesting studies and projects that use state-of-the-art geohazard and georisk methods. These studies and projects may be in the government, corporate, insurance, or NGO sectors, and may be anywhere in the world.
The specialty section will showcase modern methods of applicable quantitative analysis. In particular, Bayesian techniques and big data analytics will be applied to contemporary georisk management challenges. A key objective of the journal is to see the best and most advanced scientific knowledge and understanding applied to geohazard assessment and georisk mitigation.
As an innovative, inter-disciplinary specialty section, submissions are welcome in all fields of study of geohazards and georisks, including their interface with civil engineering, risk management, disaster finance and economics. Authors are encouraged to submit articles that may address a single or several hazard domains, but would be of interest to a wider community.
The bridge between Earth scientists and risk stakeholders is not well served by the existing scientific and technical literature. Geohazards and Georisks is the first publishing venue that will focus on strengthening this vital bridge.

Geohazards and Georisks welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Geohazards and Georisks, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Geohazards and Georisks will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Earth Science.
